Bayern stars hurting after UCL exit to Real

Salah is in the running for the European Golden Shoe and has a scored a phenomenal 43 goals for the Reds in all competitions this season - ten of which have come in the Champions League.

James Rodriguez says Bayern Munich are working to get over their UEFA Champions League semi-final loss to Real Madrid, whilst pouring water on any notion of an early return to the Spanish capital. It's not usual to be in a final for the third time in a row.

Heynckes said he expected a competent performance from the Turkish official.

Real Madrid and the Champions League just go hand-in-hand.

Former Bayern Munich player, Toni Kroos, gave an interview to Time 4 Sport after the game on Tuesday night in the Champions League. "But we believe in what we do and we will fight to achieve things". They had 22 shots at goal to Real's nine.

Kimmich had given Bayern the lead, but Karim Benzema soon cancelled out the goal and the Frenchman put Real 2-1 up just after the break following a clanger from goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

Bayern would surely have prevailed if Neuer was not still recovering from a broken metatarsal but, equally, their creative players were even more culpable for not doing more with their dominance of possession over the two legs.

Ulreich yesterday apologised for the blunder, writing on his Instagram page: "Words cannot describe how disappointed I am about exiting the Champions League".

"We really wanted to reach the final and we did our best and then this unnecessary mistake happened to me".

"You look at this Madrid team and they have major problems behind the full-backs".

Mats Hummels was quick not to apportion blame on Ulreich. On the possibility of his players looking to avoid injury ahead of the Liverpool clash, Zidane added: "We can't think about that. If you have the chances we had, you have to get to the final".

Navas produced heroics at the other end to turn a vicious deflected Alaba effort behind, and Ramos was again fortunate not to concede a penalty after another challenge on Lewandowski.

The Brazilian defender blocked a cross from Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area at the end of the first half with the score at 1-1, but Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir gave a corner.

"Yes it hits me in the hand" he told a reporter post-match.

"During the course of your career, you have your ups and downs, but they've shown that they can be relied upon at key times". Benzema's two goals here were another feather in the cap for coach Zinedine Zidane, who had made a decision to start the French striker, despite only one goal in his previous 12 games.

'I can say at this second we do have a whole lot of respect for Madrid, they're probably the greatest groups on the planet, however we're Liverpool - we're robust and we are able to beat any workforce on the planet.
